Comments on SEF rules


Kevin McPartland of Tabb Group, has a nice article which looks at three key areas of comments to the CFTC with regard to rule making for SEFs.

Block Trades (done outside of SEF) – must be 95% of the notional or principal transaction sizes in a swap instrument during the applicable period of time

RFQs – requirement to send this to at least five counterparties (SEC only requires more than one)

After hrs trading – this falls under the “made available for trading” language of the CFTC
